Reading my mind: Hot Chocolate

A week ago, I ran errands around town in 50° weather. It was warm enough that I didn't need a sweater. It was unbelievably warm for a December day. Then Monday arrived. If you had to go out, you know that it was freezing outside at 20. Of course, all of my winter coats were in the car. After walking quickly to the car, I turned it on and took off. Figuring after being outside, the inside of the car, out of the wind didn't feel too terrible.

Letter to the Editor: Abortion

Dear Editor, Life begins at the point of conception.  No one can deny that after a human being is conceived it will develop into the very same being as thosedebating this issue.  What astounds me is that those who favor abortion went through an identical development stage as the being they are condemning to death.  Would these very same people agree that a similar choice should have been made about their own existence?  How many human lives have been lost that could have added to our society in so many ways?Abortion today is used primarily as a birth control of convenience because people are too self-centered to take precautions.

Reading my mind: Holidays

It's the most wonderful time of the year they say. Most of the time I agree. The other day as I drove around looking at the Christmas lights, I wished that the Christmas season lasted way beyond December. It's the one time of the year that we all agree that peace on earth is a good thing. It's when nostalgia kicks in reminding us of times around grandma's table or when the kids were small and the best thing under the tree to them, was the empty boxes and wrapping paper.

Letter to the Editor: Why I will continue this conversation unapologetically

Dear Editor,The reason why I will not drop the conversation about the Covid "vaccines", is because the elites in this world and our federal government are trying to control the American people. Not just the American people, but people all around the world. I would like to make as many people aware of this that I possibly can in hopes that we will all come together and fight for our lives, our loved ones, our freedoms and the future of our community.
